BELLEVUE, Ohio — Authorities in Sandusky County are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a couple was found shot to death inside their bathroom.

The couple, authorities said, were in the process of a divorce.

It’s unclear exactly what time the shootings happened, but authorities said it was sometime between 9 p.m. Friday and 1 a.m. Saturday. The bodies were found by Mrs. Sears 21-year-old son.
